Marvel's Avengers Spider-Man outfits

Marvel’s Avengers Spider-Man Outfits Take Inspiration From Classic Comics

The upcoming Marvel’s Avengers With Great Power Hero Event will add the friendly neighborhood superhero Spider-Man along with a host of new outfits to choose from, exclusively for PlayStation players. Publisher Square Enix and developer Crystal Dynamics showcased some of these new outfits ahead of the character’s release, revealing some choice sources of inspiration. Notably, many of the outfits resemble those worn in some classic Spider-Man comic books, including Spider-Man: Noir as well as the original comic series. The new free update releases exclusively to PS4 and PS5 on November 30, 2021.

Starting off the collection is a suit based on Spidey’s very first appearance in The Amazing Spider-Man comic series. The outfit is a faithful recreation of Spider-Man creator Steve Ditko’s designs, and is updated to look just realistic enough to fit the overall aesthetic of the game.

There are plenty of other outfits to choose from. The Marvel’s Avengers outfit is an original design created specifically for the game and highlights Peter Parker’s technological prowess and know-how. The same suit appeared in the official reveal trailer for the character and features some pretty interesting high-tech design choices echoing those from recent Spider-Man movies.

Another iconic outfit is from the Spider-Man: Noir comic series, which takes Peter Parker to Great Depression-era New York. Noir Spider-Man was also featured in Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse. There are also some more unique outfits in the bunch such as the Bugle Boy outfit that has Peter Parker simply don a mask while in his casual clothes, with a DSLR camera strapped to his back.

We also have outfits from series such as Secret WarWeb of Spider-Man, and Parker’s high-tech Spider-suit from Ends of the Earth.

Many of these outfit designs have the superhero wearing some pretty heavy-looking power armor, complete with metal armor pads and a helmet.

There is currently no confirmation on how exactly players will be able to get their hands on these outfits, though they will most likely mimic ways of getting other character costumes in Marvel’s Avengers—earned via challenges and purchased in the in-game shop. Nevertheless, Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics will continue to reveal other outfits for the PlayStation-exclusive character in the near future via social media.

Spider-Man is coming to Marvel’s Avengers exclusively for PS4 and PS5 players on November 30th.
